i also don't like this idea. I don't like the idea (at all) of the use
of elements that are perfectly legal throwing up warnings at all. People
will be given the impression that they are doing something wrong, so
this kind of approach could be counter productive as rather that
reinforcing best practice through the stick approach, it could put
people off using the element/attribute completely.

In short, -1 to "conforming but with warnings" and this kind of verbiage.
